Morel has 2 minor league options left. Gillaspie has none. The Sox can send Morel to AAA this year without risking losing him. They cannot do the same with Gillaspie. Morel is going to have to blow him away this Spring to earn an Opening Day roster spot over him. Actually, more likely, Gillaspie is going to have to be absolutely terrible, probably doesn't matter how good Morel plays. Watch out, Gwinnett Braves, Brent Morel will be seeing you April 4!
